SHOW UP Sunday & Confirmation!!!!

You are invited to our Sunday Service on October 22, 2017 at 10 am. This is a very special Sunday service as everyone in the Parish is personally invited to "show up".

This Sunday will be a Confirmation service for those in our parish being confirmed into the Anglican Church.  Come help us welcome them to the church family!

We are thrilled to have with us with two special guests for this service. The Right Reverend John Chapman, Bishop of Ottawa will be joining us for his regularly scheduled visit and to help confirm our new members. 

The Most Reverend Suheil Duwani
Bishop John is bringing with him a very special guest from our partner diocese, The Most Reverend Suheil Duwani, The 14th Anglican Archbishop of Jerusalem, who will give the homily.

As Diocesan Bishop, Archbishop Dawani is the Chief Pastor of the 27 parishes spread through the five political regions of Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. As Bishop, he is also Chairman of the Board of each of more than thirty institutions of education and healthcare spread throughout the five countries of the Diocese, including Gaza. The diocesan schools, hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation and vocational training centers provide the best possible services while reaching out to assist those who cannot afford to pay for services and strengthening the Christian presence in this region. 

This Sunday will also bethe launch of the "Living Witnesses" stewardship campaign. We believe that living out the love of God is a way of life, not just a Sunday experience.

After the service, please join us for lunch in the parish hall.

Please come, and be welcome.
